this is one of the worst schools EVER. i have had all 3 of my kids go here and all of them have had learning problems. the classes are too big and never get around to all of the kids in the classes. there are bullies and frank has disiplinary problems
I have had all three of my sons attend Frank School (K-5th); two are in their last year at Frank, one is now attending Fee's for his last year there. I have worked very closely with many of the teachers and administrative staff and I can tell anyone willing to listen that they are all dedicated to these children and their educations. My sons have participated in the many activities, orchestra, ballet folkloria, rocket club, technology club, choir, etc... and their favorite, without question, is the multicultural festival. My best advise to those questioning the school is, like with people, to look not at the outside, but look on the inside. Don't judge the book by it's cover or location in this case. Once you do that you will realize how lucky you are to have your children attending Frank Elementary.
I believe Frank is the 'hidden treasure' of the Tempe School District. The teachers are wonderful, the school is beautiful, and the principal values every child. I think many people misjudge the school as substandard or as too focused one a single type of student. This is far from true! Frank excels at teaching and houses some of the most innovative educational programs in Tempe School District. Just visit it - you will see how great it is!
I think Frank School is a great school with caring, well-trained teachers. I am happy to see the great diversity in the student population. I do agree that class size can be an issue, but the school has been quick to respond with adjustments and rearrangements to accommodate for this. I am definitely pleased with the education this school has given my child so far.
Frank school is a wonderful school, simply because they are the very few that I know to offer pre-K. The teachers are very helpful and patient, the staff are professional, treating the students and parents with respect.
Frank school is a good school if you want your children exposed to a diverse culture of kids. But the down side is that it is a public school and it has to take all children, regardless of class room size. Which can be a problem!
I have 1 stutent at Frank now and 2 that have attended but are now in high school. I have nothing but good things to say as far as teaching and caring about all of the students. my kids have been learning how to respect people and respect themselves. there is alway someone to help the kids if they need it.
